Palm Beach Gardens Heart & Vascular Institute uses some of the latest technology to deliver quality, comprehensive care to our patients with diseases of the vascular system — the arteries and veins. Vascular problems involve damaged or diseased blood vessels that may have difficulty providing blood flow throughout the body’s blood vessels. There is an entire spectrum of circulatory disorders, including the most common problem, atherosclerosis or hardening of the arteries.

What can you expect here?

At Palm Beach Gardens Heart & Vascular Institute, our team of vascular specialists is able to optimize vascular health using medical therapies, minimally invasive catheter procedures and surgical reconstruction.

These physicians use advanced technologies and procedures, including vascular surgery, endovascular surgery and venous surgery, to treat a wide range of cardiovascular conditions.
